I want to disrupt the message in a bottle concept, and make it eco-friendly by making the bottle biodegradable.
HOW I CAME UP WITH THIS IDEA
The idea for this project came to me as I thought about Collaborizm, for which I serve as the Chief Advisor, and how it serves as a unique networking tool, i.e., it allows people to meet new people based on common interests and complementary skills. This conjures up, at least for me, the image of a message in a bottle.
OBJECTIVE OF THE PROJECT
Not entirely sure. I look at this as a passion project - to have fun and to learn while trying to design and manufacture at least 1 if not 50-100 such bottles to deploy around the world. Ideally, we’d add GPS so we can track the bottles but I’d settle for just an eco-friendly bottle that hopefully finds its way to some curious, interesting person far across distant shores.
RESPONSIBILITIES OF TEAMMATES INCLUDING ME
This is meant to be fun, not work. But to make it meaningful, we need to first introduce ourselves, explain what we each think we can offer to the project and then decide together a reasonable objective. Each of us needs to check in regularly and contribute in some way, whether by offering an opinion as to the scope of the project or in some other way advancing the conversation around it.
